CUSTOM ADAPTATIONPURPOSE: To prevent children and adults with cognitive disabilities and poor impulse control from throwing the bed. The bed frame was made of heavy square steel tubing and has six legs. A plywood platform was cut to fit and bolted to the frame. Loktite was put into the threads to make it dificult to unbolt the platform from the frame. The platform edges were smoothed and the platform was sealed with clear varnish. The bed was then bolted to the home's concrete slab floor using Loxins, making it secure and reducing the risk of damage or injury caused by the bed being thrown. DIMENSIONS: The legs raise the bed 15 millimeters from the floor. TITLE: Extra-strong Bed. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol 22, no 3, Spring 2002: p 18. PAGES (including cover) 2 2002.
